M.O. Round 1 - Water (Poseidon Rising)
My Entry for MOC Olympics Round one - Poseidon Rising.
About this creation
Here's the link to the MOC Olympics group Click here!

WATER is my chosen category.

The Title of my MOC: Poseidon Rising

This MOC depicts an angry Poseidon the Greek god of water and the seas awakened from his slumber by poor fishing boats who have stumbled across his temple. Two of the fishing boats are attacked by giant squids while the 3rd will likely be crushed in Poseidon's curios grip.
































Close up of elements:








Behind the brick...

The first thing I thought off when the topics were unveiled was the Greek gods for some reason so I chose Poseidon the greek god of water. I wanted to give it a mythical feeling and have some fun with the lego sea creature pieces that I had in my workshop.

PS for all those who ask ... no it doesn't transform! LOL!

Quoting lego fan121 Now that i take a closer look, you used the base plate brilliantly, it simulates ripples doesn't it.

This is a crafty build, although I was hoping something would transform, but you've heard that already. Well done and congrats!

thanks I had actually planned for a brick based base (say that three times fast), but I had the unique baseplate and decided to use it. Thanks for the advice. It'll put it to good use for round two.
Quoting Dave Kaleta Chris, Excellent work here. You stuck to your strengths on Poseidon and executed him well. The various scales also work to your advantage. the crux to me comes with the use of the base plate; is it clever parts usage, or just an easy way out? In the end, I felt that a more turbulent seascape (brick built) would have enhanced the presentation. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave

Piosidon remindes me kinda of galvatron with the matrix of leadership in the first transformers movie from about 30 or so years ago now.

thanks - It came with an old aquanaut set I think but I got it in a lot of baseplates I won on ebay recently!
Quoting Giovanni & Lennaert Seynhaeve Fantastic work. That baseplate is interesting, never seen it before. what set is it from? Good luck with your judges!

Wow wicked! This has a great feel to it. I am reminded of classic Ray Harryhausen, Jason and the Argonauts when Triton emerges from the water. Well done. The ship in his hand is an excellent detail.

The baseplate is factory painted that way from an old set. I didn't paint it! But it came in handy! this MOC is 100% unaltered Lego elements! Cheers! Chris
Quoting Nick Barrett Wonderful - love the idea and execution. Surely a certainty for round 2. Purists may have an issue with the painted baseplate, but I like the effect.

awesome you need one of zeus mind looking at this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/286584

yes they did, but oversized humans for major gods - like zeus, poseidon etc.. if I recall. They have been depicted many different ways in modern times. This is my interpretation a giant god poseidon coming out of the sea to crush the puny humans. Its supposed to add to the obvious differences between gods and man.
Quoting Matthew Murphy the build is great but the greeks pictured the gods as humans savvy?

Very nicely done! I love that you built this in micro-scale in order to show the magnitude and massiveness of Poseidon. Now, make him transform into a boat:) HAHA!

Some delightful details and clever effects - even at microscale it's clear what the villa on the rock and boats are. Really nice job, good luck!

I find this scene to have a great sense of motion, which is conveyed largely by the stylization of the MOC. Very nice work and good luck!
